Why did 'MAFS' stars Rachel Gordillo and Jose San Miguel Jr split? Fans dismayed
Jose and Rachel initially decided to stay married, but now have joined their four fellow couples from season 13 with their decision to divorce
After briefly splitting up with each other, 'Married at First Sight' stars Jose San Miguel Jr and Rachel Gordillo sparked hopes in fans when they decided to get back together ahead of the show's reunion. The couple claimed that they worked things out and decided to give their relationship another shot. Sadly, it looks like the reconciliation didn't work out as Rachel took to her Instagram to announce their split again.
Alongside a montage of them together, Rachel shared, "Maybe it won’t work out. But maybe seeing if it does will be the best adventure ever.” I can definitely say that being #marriedatfirstsight was the biggest adventure I’ve ever been on. It does sadden me to know that we didn’t work out in the end but it is for the best. What we had was real and for that I will always treasure it. We have grown and learned so much about ourselves. Hopefully this journey helps us become better in our future relationships. I wish José the best. At this point in my life I’m glad to say I’m truly proud of myself. I can’t wait to see what the next adventure will be and find the happiness I deserve! Enjoy our special moments because they were very special to me. #mafs #mafshouston."
Neither Jose nor Rachel shared the reason behind their split. On the Lifetime show, the couple were seen struggling with trust issues in their relationship. 'MAFS' features strangers who are paired up together by the show's relationship experts- Pastor Calvin Robinson, Dr Pepper Schwartz and Dr Viviana Coles. The couple then get married and immediately go away on a honeymoon, move in together, and towards the end of the season decide whether they want to continue to stay married or divorce.
